Ken Starr: Pennsylvania Ballot Extension 'Constitutional Travesty'

(Fox News'"Life Liberty & Levin")

The disputed Pennsylvania ballot extension forced by state courts over the legislature is a "constitutional travesty," according to famed prosecutor Ken Starr.

"What happened in Pennsylvania over these recent weeks is a constitutional travesty," Starr told Fox News' "Life, Liberty & Levin." "Gov. [Tom] Wolf tries to get his reforms, his vision, as he was entitled to do, through the legislature of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He failed.

"He then goes to the state Supreme Court, which by a divided vote, accepted the substance of what Gov. Wolf was doing, and then added thereon nooks and crannies as well."

Starr also noted it is a "crime" to "count every vote," because counting "illegal" votes violates the Constitution and state law.

"To count every vote may be a crime," Starr told host Mark Levin. "It may even be a crime under federal law. It's definitely a crime under state law, if that's as said – and here's the key word – illegal.

"And it's shameful that Vice President [Joe] Biden's people and the vice president himself are saying 'Count Every Vote' and selling a lot of T-shirts. That is a potential invitation for absolute lawlessness."

Starr said he knew of a situation where a widow cast a ballot for her deceased husband.

"A recently widowed woman knew how her late husband would vote," Starr said. "He was deceased, that's a human tragedy.

"What's a travesty is she cast his vote for him. We call that absentee ballots? No, we call that an illegal ballot."

The case that might be brought before the Supreme Court may argue a number of votes in Pennsylvania be thrown out as "illegal" for a number of reasons, including being cast late, being cast illegally, not separated as guided by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, and not have been counted with "meaningful" monitoring as required by law.
